scrot is not part of a Slackware default installation, but xfce4-screenshooter is, as is ksnapshot.

BTW KSnapshot can be run, like almost all kde apps, from Xfce and it is very nice. It has a delay timer setting so you can get just the shot you want. Simple, with intuitive features.

This is my "desktop"
Eye friendly colors when coding for long hours...
A nice icon manager (and a clock too). It's got all I need .

Well it's TWM actually (comes with xorg). It's very configurable just using .twmrc (man twm).
Very resource minimalistic. Extremely fast and absolutely iron stable.

A long time ago I was coding all day every day and used a background very similar to yours with font colors (amber, almost salmon?) that provided a good contrast and kept my eyes from getting tired.

The only problem was that when I looked away from the screen and looked across the room everything was in grayscale (no color) for a few seconds. I found it to be an interesting side effect and decided something was wrong so I changed the colors.

So that is what the X Windows tiling environments look like. Kind of reminds me of OS-9 level 2 from the TRS-80 Coco 3. It had a primitive windowing system that allowed for a similar look.

@Tracy Tiger : I haven't had any problems like that. It's just that my monitor is bright. Background is "SlateGray", foreground "AntiqueWhite".
@Arcosanti : The background are just rxvt's without titlebars that I've placed in a tiling fashion using a small script.

@rogan: I see. So you are just simulating one of the tiling windows managers then. The most minimalistic I've ever done was just running X Windows with out anything installed. It just comes up with a terminal in the background where you can start up various apps from.
